As part of the GLA food programme we will continue to work to ensure that all Londoners have access to sufficient healthy, affordable food.

Although they are not the only provider, Magic Breakfast have done a lot of work on this agenda. We know that breakfast is an especially important meal for children who are from food insecure families, and my food programme will continue to find ways to partner with organisations that can help them.

We will be supporting up to 10 London boroughs to develop food poverty action plans to help meet the food needs of all their most vulnerable residents, including children.
